Secretary Clinton Supports International Development

On her second day as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton visited the headquarters of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to show her support of their work, which ranges from international humanitarian assistance to agriculture and economic growth. "What I'm hoping to do as your Secretary of State is to work with USAID to provide the kind of leadership and support that will give you the tools you desperately need in order to fulfill the missions we are asking you to perform. We are asking you to do more and more with less, and my goal is to make sure we match the mission and the resources," said Secretary Clinton.
